  • 1 cup Wheat rava roasted
  • 1 Onion

  • Salt

To temper

  • ½ teaspoon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Urad dal
  • 2 teaspoon Chana dal
  • 2 tablespoon Oil
  • 1 sprig Curry leaves


  • First fry the rava in medium flame for 2 minutes with a teaspoon of oil if its not roasted rava. This is optional too, I don't roast, still love the aroma.
  • Heat the kadai/pan with oil and temper with mustard (should splutter),urad dal,chana dal. Let dal turn golden crisp.
  • Add the curry leaves followed by slit green chillies, chopped onion and fry till onion just turns transparent.
  • Add the veggies and fry for two minutes in medium low flame. Pour water, bring to boil.
  • After it boils, add the wheat rava little by little in a sprinkled way. Stir well.
  • Add salt and let it boil in high flame until the water content reduces and the mixture turns like porridge consistency.
  • Now simmer the flame to low and cook covered for 10 minutes or till all the water is absorbed and you get a soft upma.
  • You can add a teaspoon of coconut oil at end for a unique flavour



  • Adding a teaspoon of coconut oil or ghee towards the end enhances the flavour.
  • I used frozen peas. You can use fresh. You can make without veggies, but adds nutrition.
  • If you want fluffy upma, you can add 2 & ½ cup water alone.
  • You can add a teaspoon of finely chopped ginger, asafoetida along with green chilli.
